The Barbuda Land Rights and Resources Committee (BLRRC) has publicly denounced government efforts to manipulate public opinion regarding land distribution on the island.
The Attorney General, Steadroy Benjamin, recently cautioned Barbudans against what he termed “illegal acts” following reports of the Barbuda Council urging residents to occupy and fence off lands.
The BLRRC disputed these claims, asserting that Barbudans have lawfully allocated Council land for decades to build homes and sustain their families.
The ongoing dispute centers on changes to the Registered Land Act and concerns over the Gravenor Bay development project, which residents fear could threaten Barbuda’s ecology.
The committee pledged to resist what they call a “shameless land grab” by the government.
